AT&T selling certified like new Samsung Galaxy S4 for $29.99; purple variant confirmed for Sprint
We have a couple of stories to tell you about relating to the Samsung Galaxy S4. First, if you're looking for a cheap version of the flagship Android device, AT&T will sell you a certified like new model for just $29.99 with a signed two-year contract. The red model is not available with this offer. Considering that a brand new Samsung Galaxy S4 is $199.99 out of the box, this is not a bad deal indeed. Keep in mind that is a limited time offer that is only available online.

The second story involving the Samsung Galaxy S4 confirms something that we told you about last month. Back then, one of our readers walked into a Sprint store and found a purple S View Flip Cover which was an exclusive to the carrier. At the time, we told you to expect a purple version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 to be introduced by Sprint. It didn't take any Sherlock Holmes type deduction on our part. After all, Sprint had an exclusive on the purple version of Sammy's previous flagship model, the Samsung Galaxy S III.

On Tuesday, Sprint confirmed the existence of the exclusive purple colored Samsung Galaxy S4, which will be launching on August 16th, this coming Friday, priced at $199.99 after a signed two year pact. By the way, the purple Samsung Galaxy S III is still available for $99.99 on contract.

Obviously they marketing teams have said otherwise, but it would seem to me a better strategy to release all models and colors at the same time.
